What is the KT innovation Incubator?
The purpose of the KT innovation Incubator is to promote and facilitate innovative knowledge translation projects in childhood disability.
To begin the brainstorming process on innovative Knowledge Translation project ideas, a webinar was presented by CAPHC Presents! in August 2017 and a “BRAINstorm” workshop was conducted at our Brain-Child-Partners Conference on November 6th 2017 in Toronto, ON. We are now ready to launch a CHILD-BRIGHT grant competition to fund an innovative knowledge translation project in childhood disability. If you missed any of these past events, don’t worry… You can still submit your project. See below for more details.
What is the grant competition?
Our KT Innovation Incubator grant competition will award $20,000 to a winning knowledge translation project that aims to improve life outcomes for children with brain-based developmental disabilities and their families.
Only one project will be funded in this competition.The winning project is expected to be completed within a year. Funding is non-renewable, but a maximum extension of 6 months will be granted for project activities to be completed.
The winning team will have the support from:
- The Knowledge Translation Program team, including the expertise of the KT Advisory Committee
- The KT committee researchers will actively support the recipients of this grant in evaluating (or demonstrating) impact, therefore generating research knowledge about the knowledge translation activities.
- Additionally, we will conduct a case study about innovative knowledge translation based on the KT Innovation Incubator’s winning project.
- CHILD-BRIGHT Communications (i.e. social media channels to promote a specific event).
